USA Baseball is giving away game-used and autographed memorabilia from past players–many of which went on to big league careers in its 9 Innings of Summer giveaway. The organization is giving away one prize each day for 90 business days (Monday-Friday).
Each “inning” consists of 10 business days (two weeks).
On the first day of each “inning” (every other Wednesday, USA Baseball will post that inning’s 10 prizes at the bottom of this page between 10 a.m. and 12 noon ET.
They will then post each day’s prizes and specific instructions on its Twitter page between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m ET. Each day the instructions will tell you to retweet a specific @USABaseball tweet and will say which retweet will win. For example:
Sample Tweet: #USAB9Innings Giveaway: Stephen Strasburg Auto Jersey (picture link) 20th RT wins #collect (In this scenario, the 20th person to retweet this tweet will win an autographed Strasburg jersey.)
Once a winner is selected they will tweet that the contest is over for that day. For a complete list of rules click here.
